the presidency, said, and the house and did not like george bush very much. sure hated losing to them in 2004. they did not quit. they kept working. they took the house and the senate and the white house. it played by the rules. we took them back in 2010. never try to impeach george bush. think long and hard. these things are difficult because it is always easy to say try it. we are doing is now working. usually what that means is we need to work harder for we doing . i am old enough to watch barry goldwater go down in flames. i hated it. it took 16 years to get ronald reagan. but when we got ronald reagan it changed america and the world and ended the old soviet system. so democracy is hard work, stuff like this, people going in knocking on doors, people, you know, going out and voting. we do it. our system works. it's hard to work, and it's hard to work in part because that is what the founders wanted to be. very afraid of centralized powerful government. it will make this difficult to do. but power announcer representatives with the people, the states every year, president that for four ye
, the cold war back? >> basically. this is a very hawkish wing when george w. bush a decade ago said he looked into putin's eye and saw a good soul, they didn't believe it then. >> do they miss their teddy bear? >> this is an opportunity to take it farther. >> here's more guys, jump in here john. rick santorum, jim demint, my god, jim demint, and john bolton, who can't wait to get back in power, talking about the global terrorist alert as an excuse to hit the president. they said he's being weak because he put us on watch. let's watch him. >> i think it's really a consequence of the policies of this administration. if you look at benghazi and what happened, we haven't seen anything from this administration really go after the people who were responsible or the network behind it. and i'm sure if you're looking at it from a terrorist perspective, you say, well, here's a administration that's pulling back, that's timid. >> our attempt to placate parts of the world, reset, whether it's russia or somewhere else, are clearly not working, and the perception of weakness in this administration i
that he sent a telegram of get well to george w. bush to emphasize there was an american. he got along with very well. if you were in the east room today in. >> does he need john boehner? does he need to have a better relationship with john boehner? to chuck's point earlier about mitch mcconnell, he's not going to do any deals with the democratic led white house on a grand bargain or anything else because of primary challenge in 2014. does president obama need a better relationship than he currently has which is basically no relationship with john boehner to get something big done? >> dennis is working on those relationships. maggie, what would you like to ask president obama today? >> i would like to ask him to explain the contradictory statements out of the white house and from him about the nsa surveillance program and what is the case and what isn't? >> all good questions. i think -- presumably some of those will be asked. thanks to you, chuck. god speed as you head to the white house where it will be an interesting press conference. >>> more rain is adding to the misery today in p
. >> and there were some statements released. although i have to say, karen, probably the best one was george w. bush saying our country has come a long way since then, yet our journey of justice is not complete. just to the east of the lincoln memorial where he will speak, there on the national mall, our president, whose story reflects the promise of america will help us more the man who inspired millions to redeem that promise. george w. bush said that. >> he understood statesmanship. what was happening yesterday was an american moment. not a democratic or a republican moment. it was a very important moment in the history of this country to mark it. we know a lot of people who had been there in 1963 will never be there again. what a historic moment to see the people together celebrating progress and looking to the future, and to say, essentially by not showing up, it is not that important, as a moment in american history. >> well, i think they will have a harder time making the sale. karen finney and jonathan capehart, thank you for joining us. >>> coming up, what the fbi thought of the march on wa
that was invited had a scheduling conflict except former president george w. bush. the former president is recovering from a procedure to clear a blocked artery. so organizers invited his brother, former governor jeb bush, who also then declined. house speaker john boehner couldn't attend because he is on a 35-day bus tour for incumbent members. house republican majority member eric cantor declined because he was in north dakota touring agriculture businesses. john mccain also declined because he had public events in arizona. michael steele, the first black republican lieutenant governor of maryland and a national committee chair assessed the situation in the pages of "the washington post." he said it is part of a continuing narrative that the party finds itself in with these big deals from the minorities around the country and how they receive our response to them. in other words, you can't make the sale if you don't show up. joining me now, karen finney, and jonathan capehart. i would say it is a magical moment on the mall, in some ways, disheartening, no leadership from the republica
to the american people. vacation,going on that is such a tired, tired excuse. many times did george bush and other presidents go on vacation? people act like they should tell the president what to do. host: i wasn't making a reference to the n, but the fact there's been some talk the president even indicated when he met with the press corps a few weeks ago at a news conference that -- that a news conference would be forthcoming, and some speculated to do so before vacation next week. that is the frame of the question. caller: you're acting like you can tell him what to do. he is the president of the united states. in this congress has tried to tell him what to do. host: thank you from the call. ron has this point -- how about reaching out to congress? former governor and former 2012 republican presidential nominee mitt romney speaking to about 200 donors at lakewood in new hampshire, the headline from the washington times "romney sees a shutdown danger." from hisaiser not far new hampshire summer home. he said in his speech, i badly want obamacare to be stripped of its funds but we need to exercis
by liberals during the bush years, he has got to. george bush got resolution 1441 from the united nations that could at least make the plausible case, meant, invading iraq was legal under international law. if he doesn't get approval from the u.n. security council then barack obama will be violating international law. it will be an illegal act of war. and, that doesn't mean i'm against it necessarily or that i think president obama should care one wit about approval from the u.n. i don't think the united states should care about the u.n. at all. i think that the idea that somehow we give a veto to china and russia about the morality or efficacy or legitimacy of our foreign policy is bizarre but that is a system that liberals have been championing for a very, very long time including barack obama and the double-standards here are, you know, are just so daunting for the president, given what he had said about, you know, foreign policy when he was a candidate. that he is now going back on all of it and he is in a real pickle. alisyn: well, that is exactly right. so why would the president ac
of george bush for doing what we did in iraq. now, that's inconsistentents now. it's really baffling to see the people on the left just rallying behind president obama, yeah, go ahead. fire the missiles! we're with you. but the people who were so antiwar and anti-conflict in the past, now they're ready to go without even knowing where we're going. >> gretchen: so many unanswered questions still today. but one of the big questions this morning is what kind of chemical weapons does syria actually have? what evidence does the united states have? heather nauert is here to break it down. >> we are learning interesting information this morning. the syrian deputy foreign minister telling reporters that sarin gas was used in several parts of the country, but he claims the rebels were the ones responsible for that attack. this assertion is not banged by the us -- backed by the united states which believes the syrian government unleashed the attack and is the party responsible. but what is interesting about this statement, gretchen, is that it is the first time we're hearing from a syrian government
vituperative those times were. and there were people on the left who aimed some of that at george w. bush. admittedly, it's spun out of control now, because these folks are in control of the republican party. so it's at a fevered pitch now. but we've got this mad cycle going where each party -- yes, go ahead. >> but let me challenge that nancy pelosi had an opportunity to jump on george w. bush in the same regard. look at what she did here. she didn't play that game. she shot it down right away. i'm not going to get into delegitimization. let's watch nancy. she did not let them play this game. let's watch her, please. i'm sorry. >> okay, go ahead. >> she has pledged as a speaker she would giver the republicans rights like allowing them to introduce amendments to bills. but she may have trouble reigning in the democrats' appetite for revenge there has already been talk of multiple investigations and impeachment of the president. >> no. impeachment is off the table. >> and that's a pledge? >> well, it's a pledge, yes, it's a pledge. of course it is. it is a waste of time. >> so that's compl
andduring during the george herbert walker bush administration, the anti- tank buster rounds that were 1982.ed in we are not totally innocent either. it is hard to believe the administration. i know they are doing their best to settle the conflict in the middle east. is kind of hard when you are just as dirty as the rest of them. you can also reach out to us via e-mail. andy from vernon, new york. thanks for holding on, republican line. taking myink you for call. i want to add onto to what the last guy said. ,f your audience goes to google they are going to find numerous stories where syrian rebels admitted to an associated press correspondent that they were responsible for the chemical weapons incident, which obama is trying to blame on bashar al- assad. the casualties were a result of by mishandling the weapons. they were told that they were not properly trained in handling the chemical weapons or even told what they were. that is where it came from. this is really reminiscent of the buildup to the first iraq war in the 90s when the iraq incubator incident, in which they fabricated story
reverend joe watkins, former white house aide to george h.w. bush, and author of "let's get free: a hip-hop theory of justice." thank you for joining us today. you know, what struck me most listening to eric hold ther week, as i said, was you have -- this is a democratic administration, eric holder comes out and embraces themes not too long ago in american politics would not have just been suicidal, my first question is, paul, how significantly have ching things changed? >> a sea change. i saw "the butler," the heroic civil rights movement from lynching, jim crow, if we think about african-americans and criminal justice system of 1930s, '40s, '50s, those were the good old days. now disparity is worse. more blacks in the criminal justice system than slaves in 1950s. one out of three black men on his way to prison, so something has got to be done. that's why the attorney general was stepping up. >> i mean, eleanor, thinking back to -- we showed 1986 in there, you can go through bill clinton embracing three strikes and you're out in the 1990s, what has changed culturally and politically to
base will do the same in 2016. they put up with george bush i, put up with bob dole. deeply disappointed by george w., disappointed with mitt romney. will now come loaded for bear for 2016. i predict the hard right will take over the republican party in 2016 and the nomination is going to rand paul. you watch. this is what i do for a living. >> well, i kind of doing it for a living. i get predictions wrong, too. i love he went out on a limb there. i guess i don't quite see it with rand paul for a couple of reasons. one of them i look at is we're talking about ted cruz, talking about rand paul, scott walker. there's going to be so much territory that's occupied by all sorts of different candidates on the right, i almost wonder if that's a perfect setup for the establishment candidate who seems to win these things. >> in the last six iowa caucuses, the winner has won the nomination twice. it's not a path to the nomination, santorum, huckabee, et cetera. also the moderate candidate or the mitt romney won last time, john mccain before that, this candidate tends to win the primar
for. george w. bush had done that i think he would've been, we would've been heard cries of impeachment. we had part of our immigration laws suspended by the president. there's just a variety of issues like that where he has gone outside. we have tension with our system, struggles between congress and the president. this one is very -- i think you'll see it continue. but there will be legal cases. >> i'm going to try to bounce around a little bit but again we will get to everybody. >> i was a little concerned to find that you were not in support of making the continuing resolution contingent upon removing what optional spending you move on obamacare. i feel very strongly. i speak from a point of view -- [applause] >> i think they do, too. >> this is not theoretical for me because two weeks ago today my husband and i paid in cash for our son to have major surgery. but, you know, what? that's the price i paid for the liberty of my children. i'm self-employed. i understand the consequent of that as i've limited options thanks our government on insurance. i understand that i
on the health of former president george w. bush. he's back home resting one day after doctors surgically inserted a stint to ease a blocked artery. it was discovered during a routine physical. the president's doctors say he is doing great. >>> and it wasn't all terror and big brother with president obama on "the tonight show" last night. jay leno couldn't let him go without asking the president about his once-bitter rival turned confidant hillary clinton. the two had lunch last week at the white house. >> we had a great time. she had that post-administration glow. you know, when folks leave the white house. like two weeks later, they look great. but it was wonderful conversation. you know, by the end of my first term, you know, we had become genuinely close. i could not have more respect for her. she was a great secretary of state. very, very proud of the way she did it. >> did you notice her measuring the drapes or anything like that? >> keep in mind, she's been there before. >> that's true. >> she doesn't have to measure them. >> meanwhile, day two of deliberations in the whitey bulger
, george bush back about eight years ago tried to privatize social security. there was an organization started to defeat that. as americans united to protect social security at the time. and it morphed into americans united for change. i ran it before i went to the dnc and then they gave me the opportunity to come back and we're fighting the progressive cause. every single big issue that democrats and progressives are pursuing this summer, this fall, this term of congress, we're involved in. >> bill: i know one of them has been -- is obamacare. >> absolutely. >> bill: the republicans, first of all voted 40 times in the thousands repeal it. now the big move led by nut jobs ted cruz in the senate -- >> you said it, not me. i would have. >> bill: and tom mcclintock who i know is a certifiable nut job from california. in the house, they're saying -- in fact, we've got mcclintock at a town hall meeting, dan. i think it was yesterday in california. but he says the argument they're making now is unless we defund obamacare, we're going to shut down the government. here's mcclintock. >> house l
, and that is killing terrorists in mass. the two most hated people in andt are not george bush benjamin netanyahu. it is president obama and patterson. when the egyptians were government,he morsi patterson asked the christian leaders not to take part in a protest. booked -- she was bluntly told to shut up and mind her own business. obama backs terrorists. host: thank you for the call. street9 of the "wall journal." ats really began on july 3 the military deposes president morsi, you can see how the events have unfolded over the last five weeks. ambassador syed spoke here in washington at the institute yesterday, provided a timeline of how things unfolded. it is part of an event that we covered, runs just over an hour. it is available online at our website at www.c-span.org. here is a portion.

an issue of some level of hypocrisy in terms of the outrange that was heaped upon the george bush administration with respect to afghanistan and iraq. but there are some slight differences here. one to do with the documented facts of the u.s. of chemical weapons. number two, the general sense that this regime is unhenged and therefore needs to be contained in a way that you didn't necessarily see with the likes of some of the other players over the last few years, whether you're talking iran or whatever. so, i think that there's a different tone that you have with syria that you didn't have with the others. again, i harken back to similarities to kosovo from humanitarian perspective but it does put the democrats in a very ticklish box right now, particularly given the warriness of the american host: jim is on the line from texas. republican line. is whatmy question about this tainted election -- the obama administration. guest: in what respect? irs.r: the guest: the irs is a huge issue. i do not know how that translated in terms of a repressed election. that mightgroups have been
. there are health reasons why george h.w. bush could not make the trip to washington, d.c. george w. bush just did have heart surgery, although i think i saw him at the smu football game last night. there are also apparently some dispute over how much notice some of the no-shows got from organizers. while we can quibble over they got one, two or three weeks notice, what we do know is this milestone event, the 50th anniversary of the march on washington, was not one that republicans marked on their own calendars and made it a priority to commemorate. after all, they didn't have to be invited to speak to just show up and pay their respects. let's not pretend this is surprising because part of the story of the civil rights movement, a big part is how it fundamentally remade both political parties. leaving one a lot more interested in and responsive to the plight of black americans than the other. this graph tells the story. it shows which party black americans have identified with since 1936. you can see in the early years there around the depression and world war ii, it's basically a tie. african-am
-read. joining me now, republican strategist and former white house aide to president george h.w. bush, joe watkins, jason johnson, and editor of citizens politics and contributor for "the daily beast," patricia murphy. hello to all three of you. >> hello. >> i'm going to reach out to you first, joe, since you're all by yourself. let's talk about republican ted cruz of texas. even after the 40 previous attempts have failed, rather, to appeal that law. let's take a listen to listen t said. >> there is no more important regulatory reform that we can do than repeal every single word of obamacare. and that reaction right there shows how we win this fight. >> joe, you're a republican. are you at all tired of your party's focus on repealing obamacare instead of working to pass a budget or immigration reform for the american people? they tried to do this 40 times and failed. >> of course, this is an issue that touches on fiscal matters. and spending, of course, and how do we spend our money more wisely, and how do we provide americans for the health care they deserve without enforcing upon them a
the george w. bush administration and was part of the council of economic advisers. specimen so much for being here today. special thanks to mohammed el- erian and mr. taylor for flying from california. i went to kick off the panel with you. coined the term, the new normal in 2009. your outlook for the economy has been dead on. how much longer is this economy going to remain in the new normal? me take you back to 2009 when the new normal concept came out. the idea was to signal that it would not be your traditional cyclical recovery. unless the mindset in washington changed, and there was a better understanding of the underlying dynamics, we risked getting stuck. in a keyword of unusually sluggish clerk -- growth, high on implement, that is when it materialized. concept of the economy stuck in second gear. let me push this analogy. it is not just stuck in second gear, it is being driven on a foggy road. there is some good news. we are doing better than others. europe was in reverse and just went to neutral. japan has been neutral for a long time and just jumps to first gear. we are d
